Before we went over to Burlington to see Raffi, I looked on the internet for a good place to eat. I found one that I knew we would love, and made reservations. It is called Istanbul Kebab House. I had the very best meal I’ve ever eaten in a restaurant. You may read more about Turkish food here. This is my favorite food. I could eat it every single day and never tire of it.
Turkish red wine
Red Lentil Soup
Falafel with yogurt sauce for dipping
Blurry, but I wanted you to see the inside.
For the table:
Lavash bread to scoop up the hummus. It's a little like pita bread, but puffy.
Baklava made with Vermont apples and maple syrup
And Tom had Turkish coffee afterward. So thick he could spoon it up when the liquid was gone. The white square is some kind of sweet which you eat, and then take a sip of coffee.
Afterwards we met Hazel, Margaret, and Matt’s sister at Ben & Jerry’s.
We had gotten Hazel Nina a Peppa Pig at Barnes & Noble.
We walked around Church St.
until it was time for Raffi. Honestly, one of the happiest evenings of my life.
I don't think I've ever done a restaurant post for Weekend Cooking, and it is fitting that it be the best one I've eaten at!
